too bad the dogs really aren't that good. in any case, it's a lot of fun and a destination that can't be beat. don't bring anyone from nyc though b/c they'll be sure to complain abou the quality of the dogs.

Every two years or so I go back here hoping that I will be proven wrong. But, no, this place still sucks. The lines are incredibly long. The food is greasy and not even that tasty. I've gone here late at night after drinking and still thought it was icky. I don't get it. If you are driving by and you see no line, then maybe it's worth it for a quick bite....I guess....maybe....To say you went....

This place serves rubber hot dogs. The chili is not anything special, nothing you can get at the other famous late-night hangout, Tommy's. I don't get why so many people line up for hot dogs that are only one-step away from being raw.
Parking is real bad in the surrounding area, lines are long (why?!), and the food is a bit pricey for a HOT DOG!

I love Pink's. The chili cheese dog is delicious. I really like their season fries too. Sometimes the line can be long, but it is worth the wait. I high recommand this cheap eat.

Maybe this is because I'm from Detroit, home of Lafayette Coney Island, but I can hardly express how disappointed I was in Pink's. I can at least say that I invested the time waiting in the ridiculously long line so that I now know better and will never do so again. The hot dogs are not of good quality and neither is the chili. I choked down about 2/3 of mine and threw it away. It isn't BAD, but I certainly wouldn't call it good. Can you say ""Emperor's New Clothes""? I find the chili dogs to be MUCH better at Fatburger.

I like the hot dogs here, it's not bad, but I'm not crazy about it and it's not the best. The best hot dog I can remember was a ""Dodger Dog""!!! Overall food experience was great, they have different styles of dogs and a variety of burgers & sanwiches, I do recommend it. The worst part about it was the long line, the average wait was about 45 minutes or longer. Not worth the wait.

Okay, it is a pretty long wait in line. Especially at 2a after partying in Hollywood all nite. BUT, I have never regreted it. For those of you who want to think too much of a hot dog, you'll be let down. If you just want to have a good hot dog, you'll find it here. I love the different names they call them, like the Lord of the Rings dog (dog in 3 onion rings) and the Lakers dog (extra mustard or something). Great food and they're open late on weekends!!!

I had lunch at Pink's with my colleague today and was blown away by the food. We had Chili Dog's, Fries and Onion rings. I'm going to make Pink's a weekly stop. They even had items on the menu that my health conscious wife would eat.

Have been away from LA for over 25 years. Went to Pinks as a teen and go there every time I am back in LA (2-3 times a year). Continued great food, service and ambience. Well worth any wait for hot dog officianados.

The food is o.k. Most people go there afterhours. Usually they like to get junk food after partying around town. The food is not bad but it's not the greatest. I recommend polish dog. They're known for that.

The Crew is Incredible! After the taste that continues to draw me back year after year, is how the Crew can handle multiple and'have it your way' orders ...you never see anyone getting the wrong order! They're just Unbelievable and Fast! I also remember thinking about Pink's when I lived in Massachusetts for 13 years ...one of my first stops upon moving back to L.A. in time for the Olympics.
""Pink's"" has the BEST burger i have ever tasted. when i i came home from bootcamp all i could think about was the (Double Pastrami Swiss Cheese Burger, with Chilli Cheese Onion Rings, YES ONION RINGS, and 2 Orange Crush Soda's). so right after I was picked up from the airport at 12 midnight my brother and I had some PINK'S BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of the best landmark eateries still remaining in L.A. places like Pink's are hard to find. So enjoy it feh feh... they're not making any more... It's a landmark just like the original Tommy's off Rampart and Beverly... these are two of L.A.'s biggest contributors to tradition and taste...
Well it's lunch time... tough decision... Pink's or Tommy's.... hmmmm.... maybe a little of both... whaddya think??? ""=)

Other than the variety of toppings, there is nothing worth waiting in any line or going at all out of your way for. The hot dogs at 7-11 or gas stations are higher quality, the chili is nothing more than brown food colored soy mash that is flavorless. But there is and endless supply of easily pleased people in the world, so I'm sure Pink's will continue to do well.

We used to live in Simi Valley and loved our weekly trips to Pink's. Since we moved to Colorado in 1994 the first place we visit every year when we come to visit is Pink's. My kids even talk about it at school. The greatest hot dog ever.

If your doctor gives you permission to have a damn good, cheap, greasy meal once in a while then this is the place to spend your voucher. As a kid, I used to come to this joint at 2am right after the clubs closed down. As an adult, having been away in Europe for a good chunk of my life, I dug into one of the hamburgers and it was utter delight. The decor and ambience is a time travel experience. It's a small hut that big city developments haven't gotten to yet (like the Formosa Cafe).
